Abrégé

In today's network management world, there are various solutions that collect data and presume to identify events impacting the QoE of the end-users. However, such solutions usually do not try to address the question of whether the end-users are actually impacted. These solutions usually look at certain types of known problems and try to detect if that problem exists in the end-user's network, and from that they conclude that the end-user might be impacted. The method according to an embodiment of the invention enables to proactively identify that an end-user is actually experiencing an event impacting the QoE in his home network. The proposed solution enables the detection of event affecting an end-user's network, regardless of the type of the network and without looking for specific issues. This knowledge may be a valuable asset of an Internet Service Provider which may fix issues quicker or mitigate end-users' dissatisfaction.

Abrégé

Method for transmitting and for receiving of adaptive streaming content over a unidirectional radio frequency network and corresponding apparatuses. Adaptive Streaming digital video and/or audio services ("AS services") are transmitted via a broadcast distribution network. The AS services can be added to the traditional broadcast programming to enhance the service offering. The AS services are encapsulated for transport in an MPEG-TS, including the manifest file and stream chunks. A descriptor ("E-descriptor") is added to the Service Information ("SI") and Program Specific Information ("PSI") to enable discovery and selection of the AS services by a receiver. The receiver installs the AS services based on the E- descriptor. If an AS services is selected, it is decapsulated and manifest files are served by an AS server in the receiver. An AS receiver in the receiver reads the manifest files, fetches the chunks from the AS server, converts these to a video and/or audio elementary streams and inputs these into a decoder, which outputs decoded streams for a renderer.

Abrégé

Different implementations are described, particularly implementations for processing a medium dynamic range video signal are presented. In a method for processing such a video signal a medium dynamic range video signal and associated metadata are received, wherein the metadata include data representative of a peak luminance value of the medium dynamic range video signal. In addition, data representative of a peak luminance value of a presentation display are received. It is determined whether the peak luminance value of the medium dynamic range video signal is greater or lower than the peak luminance value of the presentation display. A processor is configured based on the determination, wherein the processor has a first mode to reconstruct a high dynamic range video signal based on a received standard dynamic range video signal and associated metadata, and a second mode to optimize a received high dynamic range video signal for the rendering device. The medium dynamic range video signal is processed by the processor in the first mode if the peak luminance value of the medium dynamic range video signal is smaller than the peak luminance value of the presentation display and in the second mode if the peak luminance value of the medium dynamic range video signal is greater than the peak luminance value of the presentation display.

The invention concerns a head-mounted device embedding a single display. However, such a head mounted device has a reduced field of view which may have a negative impact on the quality of the images presented to the users of such head mounted devices. The proposed solution consists in positioning a micro-lens array on a display of the head-mounted device to spatially multiplex images emitted by the display for each eye of a user of the head-mounted device on the entire surface of the display by interleaving pixels which emits light for a first eye of the user with pixels which emits light for the second eye and ensuring that each eye sees light emitted by pixels intended for this eye. Such a solution enables to double the field of view for each eye of the user of the head-mounted device.

Abrégé

In today's network management world, there are various solutions that collect data and presume to identify events impacting the QoE of the end-users. However, such solutions usually do not try to address the question of whether the end-users are actually impacted. These solutions usually look at certain types of known problems and try to detect if that problem exists in the end- user's network, and from that they conclude that the end-user might be impacted. The method according to an embodiment of the invention enables to proactively identify that an end-user is actually experiencing an event impacting the Qo E in his home network. The proposed solution enables the detection of event affecting an end-user's network, regardless of the type of the network and without looking for specific issues. This knowledge may be a valuable asset of an Internet Service Provider which may fix issues quicker or mitigate end-users' dissatisfaction.

The first step of the installation method comprises determining an indoor location for positioning the digital signal receiver based on measuring the signal strength of the available RF channels received through an omnidirectional radiation pattern of the smart antenna system. The second step of the installation method comprises configuring the smart antenna system, located at the determined location by the selection of a directional mode for each channel, based on a signal quality such as a signal to noise ratio, a bit error rate or any combination thereof. The smart antenna system can also be advantageously leveraged by a further optional step of dynamic optimization of the signal quality in order to take into account dynamic changes of the propagation conditions.

Abrégé

A method for detecting a status of a door is disclosed. A salient idea of the present principles is to interrogate a RFID tag comprising an integrated circuit connected to a first antenna part operatively couplable to and separable from a second antenna part, and to associate the operative separation / coupling of the two antenna parts with a relative position or an operative status of a first element relative to a second element such as for example a door relative to a doorframe. For example, the first antenna part of the RFID tag is adapted to be installed on the first element (i.e. the door), and the second antenna part is adapted to face the first antenna part as the first element is in a first position (i.e. the door is closed) and to not face the first antenna part as the first element is in a second position (i.e. the door is open). Facing antenna parts are adapted to receive an operating energy from a RF carrier for sending a backscattered reply, and the first antenna part receiving a RF carrier while not facing the second antenna part, is further adapted to not receive a sufficient amount of operating energy for sending a backscattered reply.

Abrégé

For rendering a 3D scene comprising a surface and illuminated by an area light source (A), a glossy part of a radiance is represented by drawing samples between the light source and the surface according to a random sampling process exploiting a density function (L3). Two density distributions are determined: a first one associated with reflectance properties at a shading point of the surface and with a view direction (I), and a second one associated with geometrical properties of the light source. The density function for the shading point is obtained from a product of the first and second density distributions, which are represented respectively by a first and a second cosine lobes (L1, L2). Preferably, that density function is itself represented by a third cosine lobe (L3). Application to a GPU.
